Free DAW Tracktion 4 for Mac, Windows and Linux.
Looking for a cross platform DAW for no moolah?
Tracktion 4 is a free fully featured DAW that can run on Windows (both 32-bit & 64-bit), Mac OS and Linux. has a different layout to standard software configuration in that it consists of one window where all editing is done and effects and virtual instruments are dragged and dropped into a lane on the right.
Although Tracktion 4 has been superseded by version 7 this is still a very capable DAW (originally sold for $60 US) and is worth investigating since it will host many third party VST and AU plugins and is not limited like many other free DAW offerings currently available.
Tracktion is not really designed for mastering but for basic mixing and creating a demo it works fine.
